Topics I've Started

Nick's Sons

12 March 2013 - 12:29 PM

Kevin is 18 now and I assume that if he was an elite prospect we would have heard about it now.  But, does anyone know much about him and his brothers? I cant seem to find any info.


I also found it interesting that Nick has 4 sons while Stevie has 3 daughters. Has it occured to anyone else that we should get these kids together so they can mate and create some kind of super-human hockey player?

Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

06 March 2013 - 03:15 PM

Marc Staals horrible injury last night has re-sparked the debate on whether visors should be mandatory in the NHL. I personally feel they should be because history shows that hockey players arent that smart or are very stubborn. I have played a lot of hockey and have worn a visor for years and dont feel it inhibits me in any way.


NHL players dont wanna wear visors, they wear shorter gloves exposing their wrists and forearms. Kevlar socks and armbands have been available for years and hardly anyone uses them. Neck protectors have been around even longer and I cant think of a single NHL who wears one yet EVERY single NHL player wear shin pads, protecting apparently the most vital of all body parts- The Shin.

Cam Barker Released

17 December 2012 - 01:16 PM

Saw this today. Amazing how quickly this guys stock has dropped.

From Rotoworld:

Former Oiler defenseman Cam Barker was released by the Texas Stars of the AHL Saturday.

He did not show enough to earn a spot on the club's roster. it has been a rapid decline for Barker, who was once thought to be one of the NHL's brightest young rearguards. We doubt he will have any fantasy value again

Martin Frk

22 November 2012 - 07:51 AM

So I attended the Halifax Mooseheads game vs. Baie Comeau last night and it was yet another entertaining game of junior hockey. Marty Frk really stood out and even garnered First Star honors. Frk has been really playing well of late and his shot is, by all accounts, already of elite NHL level. What has really impressed me though is the improvement in his skating from last year to now. I think were looking at a potential 40 goal scorer in the NHL if they ever play again.
